Winter Alphabet by Lizzie*Kate
Le sigh. I will restart this one, probably next winter. I planned to stitch the entire series, so I will dig out the one for Spring and get going on it. I think, since I am starting over, I will go ahead and get the proper fabric (the patterns call for 32 ct). And make Absolutely Sure that I start in the correct place. Even if that means I have to grid the darn thing. Blerg.

I may salvage some of those to make fobs or ornaments. Astute observers may notice that I have changed the colors on some of these. I'm still using the called for DMCs (except for the "white"--I didn't like how the listed one looked with the fabric), but I am substituting where some of them are used.
After some hair-pulling and teeth-gnashing and eye-tearing, I worked some more on Jean Farish's America Land That I Love to help ease the pain. I finished another state block, which did make me feel slightly better. I should take pictures of that.
